A confined path filled with astonishing paradoxes that occur on your way forward. A race on the wide band of road, while environment becomes even more strange in the course of time. Robotic structures made from basic blocks are progressing, build each other like a giant meccano producing tens of ready mechanisms every minute. This is an electronic nightmare in which one may get caught. An endless maze-world from which there is no escape. Would it wish to let you go? 01.I am Robot (4:22)...

This week on the show we wish a very happy 75th birthday to pop and theme tune composer extraordinaire Tony Hatch. Of course, this does mean that Tony isn't quite eligible for entry into the Moonbase Hall of Fame (which has a minimum age requirement of 80).

On the show this week we celebrate the life of Broadcast's Trish Keenan who, quite unbelieveably, passed away on Friday. Broadcast were the epitome of retro-futurism and were doing "hauntology" a good decade or more before the term was coined. Their music sounded like it was recorded in a parallel splintered dimension of space crystals. Broadcast were also, in our humble opinion, the greatest of the plethora of bands exploring this sonic landscape which sprung up in the West Midlands...

On the show this week we celebrate all things Finnish as every track on the show hails from that Nordic nation.

This week's show attempts to straddle the worlds of alarm clocks and twanging surf guitar. Alarm clocks are provided by the Advisory Circle's Jon Brooks who has somehow managed to craft an entire album made entirely from the sounds made by a Braun AB-30 alarm clock.

On this special bumper edition of the show we'll be celebrating the astonishing, iconic work of the greatest film soundtrack composer of the 20th century, John Barry, who sadly left us last weekend. His music was known - and loved - by literally millions of people. In fact it's hard to imagine anyone in the Western world who isn't at least aware of the great man's music. Honorary Moon Lord John Barry will be greatly missed. For our own humble celebration of the great man's work, every tune on...

Quantum mechanics is not simply a branch of physics or some direction in science. Quantum mechanics is a very different conception on the reality around us and about our place in the world. To understand what it means, here is an example of such idea: if two interrelated electron are divided by space as big as the universe, and we affect one of them, the second electron instantly react to changes with the first.

In a journey through life one may experience periods of reflection, search for new beginnings and deeper philosophies. The most important and impacting episodes of life leave an imprint of a shifting style of common work, artistry, intercourse, mood and even way of life.

It is said that man can achieve anything in his dreams. Less than 500 years ago Copernicus discovered that Earth was not the center of the universe. In 1609 Galileo Galilei pointed his telescope on various planets in our Solar System. From then on the dream began. What are those strange lines on the surface of Mars? Are we alone, circling the sun? These questions still puzzle us. And there is only one way to find out for sure - to set foot on Mars, like we did in 1969 on the Moon. Not just to...
